I'm trying to open a CDS entity in excel, using the "open in excel" function. While the connection is being established the Microsoft PowerApps Office Add-in asks me to log in with my CDS User Account. I sign in, using the same credentials, I used for PowerApps logon. However - it's not working. I just get an error message back, saying "An error was encountered while attempting to authenticate".
thank you Mona, for your kind response. Right, both accounts are the same. When trying to open an entity in excel, the excel application starts up. Usually the system would recognize me, but now I need to sign in. I enter the same credentials as in PowerApps and get the error even before I'm asked for a password.
I tried the same process with some other credentials in another environment (Office Trial and P2 Trial) which works fine.
I just tried to open the data in CDS and came across another error message, that might be related to the problem. When click on "Data" in the related entity I get the following message
The entity could not be fetched: Principal user (Id=123cf456-1ab2-c987-a12b4f-000d3a1ccf10, type=8, accessMode= 0, roleCount=2, privilegeCount=438, is missing prvReadmsdyn_solutioncomponentsummary privilege (Id=ff12d34b-1234-5c6c-b789-a123a45f0b0b.
